Congratulations to Brian and Liz on their recent engagement.
Happy Birthday to Mike. A bunch of us took him out to celebrate last night.
My parents left yesterday after a visit. They overhauled my house and have it ready for spring. We all went to see the Phillies and Red Sox play on Saturday with Scott and Jane. The Phils were looking pretty good. I took it upon myself to boo Manny Ramirez very loudly, as should any respectable baseball fan. Miguel Tejada and Alfonso Soriano should also be on the short list for booing. Any player with a multi-million dollar contract and trade demands or position playing demands must be booed. At the top of this booing list is Johnny Damon. The once Baseball Jesus is now the baseball Judas, selling out rivalry for cold hard cash, shaving his beard, and cutting his hair. Even if you’re a Yankees fan you should be booing this wretched man. I did cheer for Coco Crisp, I don’t hate everyone. How can you not with such a great nickname? Enough of my opening day baseball ranting, let the games begin.
Summer Hymns have posted a preview track on their myspace page. It’s super hott and will begin to thaw us northerners out for the springtime. Zachary and I have been chatting on and off since an autumn 2001 performance about doing a Summer Hymns one-sided LP. Guess what? It’s listed in the update and should be out before another year goes by.
It’s going to be a busy week. My friend Adam is putting on a show with Emperor X and Frank Delano on Wednesday and it should be a good one. Ben is supposed to be driving down from NYC for a week’s stay or so and Todd will be arriving from Canada on Wednesday for the Philadelphia Film Festival.
